    Diane Glancy in Conversation with Kimberly Blaeser

    11:00 amMinnesota State Fairgrounds, Fine Arts Building, St. Paul, Minnesota

    Diane Glancy’s poetry and prose has long considered the entangled threads of community, history, and language. In her latest work, A Line Of Driftwood: The ADA Blackjack Story (Turtle Point Press), Glancy creates a new narrative based on the historical record of a young Inupiat woman who survived on a small island 200 miles off the Arctic Coast of Siberia for two years after traveling there as a cook and seamstress along with four professional explorers. At this special TCBF event, Glancy will be in conversation about the book and the fascinating history behind it with Wisconsin writer Kimberly Blaeser.

    Join us for a reading of local and regional poets in celebration of HYBRID: Transported by Word and Image. HYBRID is an installation of poetry and photography in taxi cabs, a project that began in Madison, WI, where the work of 43 poets was paired with photographs taken by Thomas Ferrella. Poet and curator, Sara Parrell, worked with Ferrella to combine photographs and poems in order to create unique works of art, which were then installed in each of the Prius cabs owned by the Green Cab Company in Madison. Since September 1st, these works have been on view in Milwaukee in the Prius cabs owned by the American United Taxi Cab Company.
